Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Michal Neuvirth will miss 7-10 days with a lower-body injury, general manager Ron Hextall said Tuesday.

Neuvirth is 11-6-2 in 21 games in his first season with the Flyers. He has a 2.14 goals-against average, .933 save percentage and three shutouts.

Neuvirth has won four of his past six starts, including a 4-3 overtime win against the Washington Capitals on Jan. 27 in the Flyers' final game prior to the All-Star break.

Goalie Steve Mason is expected to start Tuesday when the Flyers host the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET; CSN-PH, RDS, SNE, NHL.TV).

The Flyers recalled goalie Anthony Stolarz from Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League. Stolarz, who recently appeared in the AHL All-Star Classic, is 15-10-3 with a 2.45 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 29 games for the Phantoms this season.
